Even better: the trend in this type of tornado is down.
ADDITION: I was not aware of this (posted 1:27pm CST). If we can get through the day (there is a tornado watch in effect as I write this) without a tornado death, and I think we can, this is quite an accomplishment for weather science.
tornado warning system is a Nobel Prize-worthy endeavor.
Congratulations to meteorologists at the
National Weather Service,
in private sector meteorology and
to emergency managers across our nation!
